Past and future
In Dance of the Damned, a letter from an estranged friend drags Miskatonic University librarian Daisy Walker into a long-forgotten nightmare, where she must face her dark past to solve a terrifying mystery. But her fate will soon intertwine with that of Tony Morgan, a bounty hunter forced into a dangerous job by a secretive employer. As a growing cult seeks to awaken ancient powers and a shady corporation works to cover its twisted agenda, these two unlikely heroes must search for truth in the midst of horror.
Dance of the Damned is the first novel in The Lord of Nightmares Trilogy, a series based on the wildly popular board game Arkham Horror. Its author, Alan Bligh, is a full-time writer and game designer from Nottingham, England. His credits have included radio scripts, various roleplaying games such as Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, and Cthulhu Britannia, and the Imperial Armour book series of science fiction wargaming expansions for Forge World.
Meanwhile, Golem tells the story of one bioroid’s hunt for justice and humanity in the not-too-distant dystopian future of Android. When talented New Angeles Detective wakes up in bed with a woman whose name he can't recall, this seemingly harmless mystery indicates a much larger problem. After all, as one of the few synthetic life forms in the New Angeles Police Department, Drake 3G12RC isn't accustomed to forgetting... or even sleeping. But his personal issues are forced to wait when he and his human partner Shelly Nolan are assigned a high profile murder investigation–one that will change his world.
The first book in The Identity Trilogy, Golem is a brilliantly woven thriller by Mel Odom, author of over 140 sci-fi and fantasy works, and bestselling writer of Stalker Analog and Lethal Interface. Check out Mr. Odom’s interview (parts one and two) for more on his influences.

I'll be buying any books that have exclusive AH card offers, even though I didn't enjoy GotM as a novel.
I don't think it's posted anywhere on the website, but Dance of the Damned comes with an offer for a special Mythos card for Arkham Horror. Playing with Oliver from Ghouls of the Miskatonic is awesome, and they supported it with scenarios from Arkham Nights, so I'm excited to see how this Mythos cards incorporates aspects of Dance of the Damned into the game. Also, I wonder if each book in each of the two trilogies will come with such an offer...
